Only Two Weeks To Go!

I'm so excited!  And at that same time, I'm so exhausted!  The Home Festival here in Brisbane is only a week and a half away and I've still got to get my display finished.  I need the Altered Book finished up, painted and the story about why I love to collect, read and write books completed.
Since last Saturday, I've worked on around four or five pages, glued together my fair share of them, gotten glue on the kitchen table, paint all over me.  Every day, for 2 - 3 hours each day (including weekends), I've been working on this Altered Book.  I have also been working on cutting out things from writing and old 'Good Reading' magazines (these date back to 2009 and 2010, so they're really old magazines I don't read anymore but I don't wish to throw away).  

I'm thinking of working here at home instead of going to the Logan Art Gallery so I have all the things I need right here.  And if I need something to eat, I can have it... or if there's a brush I need, I have it - you know, all the equipments right here at home.

I can't wait until this exhibition is over and finished.  I'm able to keep my gear and use it as I wish too.  Well, until my next post, happy reading!


  1. Wow, sounds like a lot of work!! I hope you'll be posting pictures of your work here on your blog as I'd love to see the end result!!

    1. I will be. It'll be in a collage form as there's so many steps... but it'll be here. :D

    2. Goodie!! I look forward to seeing the pictures. :-)
